A producer of the Tupac biopic "All Eyez on Me" is defending the flick after Jada Pinkett Smith slammed how her relationship with the rapper was falsely portrayed.

Singleton and Pinkett Smith were not the only ones to criticize the film. On Memorial Day weekend, poor reviews were seen as a major reason why "Baywatch" and "Pirates of the Caribbean" did not have as strong an opening as box office trackers expected.

The two films ahead of the rap drama were Cars 3 and Wonder Woman. Instead, the film posted a surprise opening estimate of $27 million and won over the rapper's fans on opening night with a CinemaScore grade of A-.

And its audience score on Rotten Tomatoes is a respectable 70%. It is directed by Benny Boom and stars Demetrius Shipp Jr.as Tupac.

"[All Eyez On Me is] a clumsy and often bland account of his life and work..."

(Radio.com) Jada Pinkett-Smith is not happy about the portrayal of her relationship with Tupac Shakur depicted in the All Eyez On Me biopic, which hits theaters on Friday.

Pinkett Smith said her relationship to Shakur was "too precious" for her not take issue.

"I found interviews that she gave us in a very true form", he continued. "I knew they weren't going to make a good movie at all and they didn't".

"I created the Holy Trinity", he said in a video, obtained by TMZ. He had to leave abruptly and it wasn't to pursue his career ... I've never been to any of Pac's shows by his request. We never had an argument backstage.

Pinkett Smith called the biopic "deeply hurtful."

Tupac was 25-years-old when he was gunned down in a drive-by shooting in 1996.

The gaffe prompted users on social media to use the phrase, "I left when I saw Pac..."

Hammer later added to the fan: "After you see the movie you will understand my response to your question".
